1890's Bodice

From the seller:

We are selling a large collection of antique clothing that came from a remarkable auction several years ago. All had been accumulated in a trunk by an early Connecticut family. We are selling the items that did not have good identification or that had some minor condition issues. Please check our other auctions to see all 60 items eventually listed.
And please assume that all garments are too small to fit you. We do not care to facilitate destruction of these artifacts by providing detailed measurements to those looking simply for costumes to wear.

From Me:

Since this is now mine (Bwahahaha!) I'll try and get the measurements up tonight. I just wanted to post it now and point out one of the features I found interesting - the yellow bias tape around the edges of the fabric inside the seams.
